A chef's knife is a personal choice. That's why Shun offers so many different lines and blade lengths. For instance, in the same way that some cooks prefer a longer chef's knife, others prefer a shorter length. For cooks who enjoy the lightweight nimbleness of a shorter blade, we offer the Shun Premier 6-in. Chef's Knife. Of course, it performs all the tasks for which you choose a chef's knife, from slicing, dicing, and chopping to making rocking cuts through herbs. Yet it also offers the quick performance and high degree of control that a slightly smaller knife can provide.
